SESSION TITLE: Pulmonary Vascular Disease I

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

The existence and prevalence of non-compaction of the right ventricle is essentially unknown and considered rare. However, in our clinical experience, with frequent detailed echo imaging of the right ventricle along with 3D imaging, RV non-compaction seems more prevalent than originally thought.
